Olivier Capparos (1968) :
Instrumental and electro-acoustic composer, his work involves as well philosophy, litterature and, most obviously, music. Many of his works are focusing on the voice and its interpretation through loudspeakers.

As a writer, he published poetry, essays and short stories (reviews, monographies, booklets for cd’s...)

Graduate of the E.H.E.S.S.(Paris, 1996)

Master degree in philosophy Professor at the “Collège International de Philosophie” (2000), he teaches philosophy, history and art at several universities (Paris VII, VIII.. international symposiums...)

Student in music at the E.N.M. (Lyon) and at the Schola Cantorum (Paris)

Production and engineering of radiophonic creations, broadcast on France Culture/ Radio France - 1994-2004 : thirteen broasdcasts, following Beckett, Tchékhov... and some musical creations (for ex. “Voyage à Babel” with Lionel Marchetti - 1999)

Winner of radiophonic and musical creations prizes : Radio France, WDR (Germany), La Muse en Circuit, SCAM...

For several years his work is mixed with Lionel Marchetti’s work : they composed and wrote many musical works and broadcasts...

Invited composer in residence with Lionel Marchetti at the INA-GRM (2001), the Studio National des Arts Contemporains du Fresnoy (2002-2003), the Argos Center (Bruxelles, 2004)...

Four works recorded for commercial cd’s (Shamballa Records, Argos...)
He composed and conducted many instrumental works (for chamber orchestra (2005), and soli (voice (soprano), violin, piano...)


Lionel Marchetti
is a French composer of concrete music
an improviser (electronics, various analogic systems with modified speakers, REVOX reel-to-reel recorder…)
as well as a visual-sound artist, a writer and a poet

Whether his music is composed or improvised
the body has an important role (Lionel Marchetti danced with the university company Relyanse between 1986 and 1991)

To define his music, one can borrow Kenneth White’s saying :

« Concrete or abstract ?
I like abstraction where a memory of substance remains, concrete refined on the frontiers of emptiness. »
[free translation]
